2022 Punta Gorda Chamber of Commerce Members & Visitors Guide Page 85 BY DANIEL SUTPHIN Sun Writer Punta Gorda prides itself on its parks for people, but where do the pups get to play? For free-running dog days, Hounds on Henry − a dog park on West Virginia Avenue in Punta Gorda − is the obvious location, but if you go to any other park in the city, bring a leash. Where are dogs allowed? • Laishley Park, 120 Laishley Court • Alice Park, 802 W. Retta Esplanade • Pittman Park, 400 W. Retta Esplanade • Nature Park, 1555 Aqui Esta Drive Punta Gorda Pathways (There are three segments: Harborwalk, Linear Park, and shared-use paths in 18 miles throughout the city limits.) All dogs in these areas must be under "physical control," according to a Punta Gorda Police Department Facebook post. Other than those locations, PGPD noted that only service dogs or law enforcement dogs are permitted in any public city park, beach or playground. WHAT TO REMEMBER Use common sense: In public, all dogs must be leashed and not allowed on private property without permission from the owner. "The only leash law that we can directly enforce are the ordinances related to pets in the parks," said PGPD Lt. Dylan Renz. "For Charlotte County ordinance violations, we would call the Animal Control department." Where can you take your dog?
